- Erasmo CasianoChef / Owner - Create Cooking School
In Ras’ family, everyone cooks, and his hospitality education started at an early age. His father, Jose Manuel, armed with impeccable fire-starting skills, would man the grill, and his mother, Santa, would prepare intricate sides and traditional salsas. Weekends at home came with an open door policy, encouraging spontaneous neighborhood dinner parties. Their house was constantly filled with family, friends, food, and music.
In 2005, Ras left Texas to study Culinary Arts at Johnson & Wales University in Providence, RI. After spending a year in New England, Ras transferred to the Denver campus to finish his degree. After college Ras refined his style in restaurants around Texas and in Denver.
After 4 back surgeries due to the grueling hours in the kitchen, Ras decided to open up a cooking school.
Ras opened Create Cooking School at the Stanley Marketplace in November 2018 with his business partner, Diego Coconati and hopes that he can share the hospitality he learned at an early age with the community he has grown to love in Colorado. Create Cooking School offers recreational cooking classes and a full service wine and cocktail bar.
